Jen Kearney and the Lost Onion are an original soul/funk/Latin band
from the Boston area. With comparisons to Stevie Wonder, Irma Thomas,
Eddie Palmieri and others, they have been bringing their sound to the
Northeast in a layered frenzy of soul food spice.
"A few weeks ago, I found gold during a marathon listening
session"...something close to the wondrous flavor of prime '70s
Stevie...Kearney qualifies as a well-kept local secret..." - Larry Katz,
The Boston Herald
"The band seamlessly blends elements of soul and Latin with a touch of
jazz influence, all in a very natural way. The music on "Eat" sounds like
a meeting between Stevie Wonder and Lydia Pense/Cold Blood at the junction
of Santana and Eddie Palmieri, but without being blatantly derivative.
Kearney pulls it off by being an exceptionally able songwriter. Her tunes
blend sophisticated melodies and harmonies with sharp, story-like lyrics
that offer snapshots of her world." - Alan Chase, The Wire
